1972 Honda CB 350

While this bike needs a few finishing touches to be considered complete, it’s very very close. I really like the color choices and the overall presentation. I think I’d get some fenders back on it but otherwise think it’s a sweetheart.

1971 Norton Commando Cafe

What a beautiful mix of collector classic and modern cafe I love the polished tank, yellow frame, and upgraded front end. Something needs to be done with that front fender but otherwise I’m in love!

1971 Norton Commando Cafe for sale on eBay

From the seller:

For sale is a 1971 Norton Commando concept cafe racer professionally built, needs nothing and is ready to go. You will not pass yourself on this Norton, it is the one and only like this! The tank is polished alloy with no dings or imperfections abd has a gold Norton inlay over the aluminum, the frame was painted yellow and has a modern wiring, front end off of a 2009 Honda sport bike and wheels off of a Yamaha XS500, the seat is actually comfortable and is a new norton seat, the bike can be used for show or go! The weight is much less than stock approximately 350 lbs. and still needs to be broken in, after around a hour or two of riding it will need to have the oil drained out to get any shavings that may be in there out of the motor! This is a brand new bike and will make the new owner happy to have. Modern disc brakes stop on a dime and the sound of the exhaust is very impressive, I am selling this bike for the previous owner, so if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them, have a clear florida title in hand and a fl. bill of sale form from the dmv ready to go.

Just some of the new parts are as follows:

1. Handmade polished aluminum gas tank built by Tab 2 Classic’s in the U.K.

2. Headers and cafe racer style seat.

3. CNW front and rear motor mounts.

4. Single coil conversion kit from CNW

5. Emgo mufflers.

6. Tri-spark alternator

7. Hagon shocks.

8. Boyer ignition.

9. Metal flake silver fenders.

This is a numbers matching Norton, I cant help with too many technical questions, the owner who bought the bike past away, but the title is clear and signed ready to go! It is ready to win many motorcycle shows, only 15 total miles on this bike. The man who had this built spent over $10k to create what you see here.

Choppahead 1972 Triumph TR6 For Sale on eBay

Here’s a beautifully built classic! The seller does all the work for us with great pictures and description:

You are bidding on a completely rebuilt 1972 Triumph TR6. We originally built this bike for a customer a few years back – he put 100 miles on it, then had to store the bike due to illness (inside, heated storage). Anyhow, we just got the bike back, ran through it all (put on new levers/cables), and are now selling it for the customer.

Here’s some specs on it:
- Complete engine rebuild (top and bottom end) – about 100 miles on the rebuild (6149 original miles on the bike total)
- Powdercoated frame, side covers, and wheel hubs
- Rebuilt wheels (stainless Buchanan spokes, British rims), new Avon Roadrunner tires
- Tins are painted silver, tank has white race stripes
- Corbin Alligator Skin seat
- New Clubman handlebars, new levers/cables

Everything on this bike was gone through, updated, and rebuilt on this bike by Choppahead Kustom Cycles – an internationally known and premier Triumph shop that has been building customs and restorations for over 11 years.

Fly in and ride this bike home!

1977 Ducati 900SS Track Bike

While this one is a bit on the edge of being a “cafe bike”, let’s face it, most cafe bikes are born with a target of being a bit more racy. This one goes all the way.

1977 Ducati 900SS Track Bike on eBay

From the seller:

1977 ducti 900ss track bike
i bought this bike 10ys ago out of a large collection. It was a already a race prepped bike. the rear loop has been cut out and many period weight saving mods have been made
This has been my track bike for years. it is a correct 77 900ss with all the goodies
front rim is a borrani 4777 3/2.5 18
rear rim did 3.50 18
engine # 086287 dm860
the frame number was cut and welded over and just the first and last numbers are able to be seen
carbs are dellorto 40 a d
i added a aftermarket ignition system to help with high rpm
the prior owner installed a round case cover with remote oil lines to the cam covers also has a remote spin off oil filter
the bike is right side shift with gp pattern
please look at all the pictures closely to see all the parts and racing mods on this bike
this is a fast track bike that has provided me years of safe fast fun track days
this will make a great ahrma battle of the twins bike (just need to add oil catch pan)
bike has been stored for the last 2 years in a climate controlled garage
bike has been at many usdesmo track days
please ask many questions
hate to see it go but time to get a newer track bike that has a started button
this bike has no title and was sold to be on a bill of sale from the prior owners car dealership in NC
It will be sold on a bill of sale with all the prior paper work I have
rear works shocks set for 200lb
front springs are progressive
pipes are arc fab custom (thanks leslie) before he quit making pipes bike sounds great
this bike was at ducstock this past year and was in the loud bike contest

If I was to channel the 16 year old in me, I’d say slap some lights on it and don’t change a thing. Keep it a snarling, sharp, and an unforgiving purpose built machine that somehow made it back to the street. Silly, but is it…

I’ve been on cruise control with Cafe Bikes For Sale but with a few popping up on our sister site recently, and more emails about the archives coming in recently, we’re getting back in the saddle. I’ve been focusing on other projects but I really want this website to do well. Thanks for sticking with us!

To get us back in the swing of things with a proper 2nd kick, we’re starting things off with this very special one off Norton Vincent combination:

Sparks provided by a Kubota alternator powering a gel-cell battery and coil twin point ignition.
